Tony Maws (born, 1970, and raised in Newton, Massachusetts)[1] is an American chef and restaurateur. Maws is the chef/owner of Craigie on Main (formerly called Craigie Street Bistrot) in Cambridge, Massachusetts and the "chef/proprietor" of Kirkland Tap and Trotter in Somerville, Massachusetts.[2]

Early years[edit]

After graduating from the University of Michigan[3] with a BA in Psychology and uncertain what he wanted to do, Maws traveled to Europe for a year and upon returning to New England quickly got a job as a waiter in Martha's Vineyard. While working as a waiter Maws wrote to chefs around the U.S. and was hired by Chris Schlesinger to work at the original East Coast Grill.[4]

Craigie on Main[edit]

In 2003, Maws opened Craigie Street Bistrot in Cambridge, Massachusetts, which is considered one of the top restaurants in Boston, winning several awards and recognitions.[4] In late 2008 Maws moved Craigie Street Bistrot to a larger venue on Main Street in Cambridge and added a bar.[5] He also renamed it Craigie on Main.
